I’ve got the answer key to your time travelin’ picture.

Mama- i said you could breathe a little lighter.

I’ll keep this train on it’s tracks

[[you know i’ve always been good at that]]

And with every dime and every nickel, i’ll buy back some pride.

You’ve brought me many things, and it’s all been takin’ in stride.

Now i know it’s been years and many more will follow; with 22 anchors and a bucket of tears to swallow.

You can’t sing me these songs no longer, i’ve built my own shoes to fill.

So when my head raises a little higher, and the sun shines a little brighter,

Rest assured you’ve brought up a little fighter.

I’ve got the answer key to your time travelin’ picture.

Mama- i said you could breathe a little lighter.

I’ll keep this train on it’s tracks

[[you know i’ve always been good at that]]

The stories of old, those tales you’ve told.

i’ll bring them with me as i travel the same dirt roads.

With a blue bird on my palm , i’m gunna rewrite that same old song.

These trails are tattered but i wont be torn.

When the clouded hours creep,

The sun is reborn.

I’ve got the answer key to your time travelin’ picture.

Mama- i said you could breathe a little lighter.

I’ll keep this train on it’s tracks

[[you know i’ve always been good at that]]

Don’t you worry ‘bout a thing

I’ve got a shovel and a dream; reachin’ over the mold

Never stop diggin’ .

Throwin’ it over my shoulder, rest you burdens on my back.

I’ll bury it under the ocean, mama there’s no lookin’ back.

These shadows wont be knockin’ down my door

[[no these shadows wont be knockin’ down my door]]

I’ve got the answer key to your time travelin’ picture.

Mama- i said you could breathe a little lighter.

I’ll keep this train on it’s tracks

[[you know i’ve always been good at that]]
